At long last the 2024 U.S. Figure Skating Championships are on. Skating's elite, including reigning women's national champion Isabeau Levito and the current men's national champion Ilia Malinin, are expected to compete in the seven-day event.

While all championship-level events will air on cable television, it's impossible to watch all the other events taking place at the 2024 U.S. Figure Skating Championships on cable. You'll need a Peacock streaming subscription for that.

The 2024 U.S. Figure Skating Championships will take place at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, OH now through Sunday, Jan. 28, 2024. All championship level events will air either on NBC or the USA Network, and will stream on Peacock.

Who is competing in the 2024 U.S. Figure Skating Championships?

Expect Olympic-level competition at the 2024 U.S. Figure Skating Championships, with 180 qualifiers stepping on the ice over the six-day event. Eighteen women will vie for the women's singles U.S. championship, many of whom already rank high with the International Skating Union (I.S.U.) for the 2023-2024 season.

Current national champion, 16-year-old Philadelphia native Isabeau Levito, is expected to compete as is Amber Glenn, the 24-year-old from Texas. Glenn identifies as bisexual and pansexual, making her the first queer athlete to earn a medal for a U.S. senior women's figure skating event. Glenn earned a silver medal at the 2021 U.S. Figure Skating Championships. Currently ranked 16th for the I.S.U.'s 2023-2024 season, Glenn is the second-highest ranked U.S. skater in world standings behind Levito.

Fans can also expect to see 18-year-old Lindsay Thorngren, who won the bronze medal at the 2022 World Junior Figure Skating Championships. Fan favorites Ava Ziegler and Audrey Shin are scheduled to compete. Starr Andrews, best known for the "Whipp My Hair" routine the then-nine year old performed (which went viral on social media and garnered an epic response from former First Lady Michelle Obama) is expected to compete as well.

World No. 1 Ilia Malinin, one of three American men in the I.S.U.'s Top 20, is expected to take the ice. Camden Pulkinen and Los Angeles' Jason Brown will also compete in the singles category.

Top singles pairs including Alexa Knierim and Brandon Frazie, Emily Chan and Spencer Howe, and Valentina Plazas and Maximiliano Fernandez are all scheduled to compete at this year's U.S. Figure Skating Championships as well.

Four-time U.S. ice dance champions Madison Chock and Evan Bates are set to compete, as are three-time U.S. Championship medalists Caroline Green and Michael Parsons.
